Train to Kiama and back: 3 – starting at Wollongong 2




The train is an Oscar — that one being Sydney-bound from Kiama, but the train I took is identical. And for nostalgia buffs, myself included, here is what a Kiama train looked like 50 years ago – departing Wollongong southwards. Linked to a great set of A J Hurst’s photos. Oh, the 1997 – obviously a special train, as steam was by then long gone. OR – as the line does not seem to be electrified and there are semaphore signals operating still – the photo was taken long before 1997 but posted then.  Yes, that is much more likely…
